Driving in the bush

Conditions change in parks for many reasons. Check for any changes affecting the park you intend to visit. ALWAYS check current road and weather conditions before you head 'bush' as many tracks become inaccessible due to rain and/or high water levels. It is best to avoid bush tracks after rain so try and stick to the safer, main roads. For more information on bush and river track closures during winter and also road closures due to bush revegetation or rehabilitation during different times of the year please visit the Parks Victoria website or NSW National Parks websits.

In the warmer times of the year, please check total fire bans and ratings (Country Fire Authority) before you enter a park, please check the CFA website for Total Fire Ban declarations including a 4 day forecast .
